Chamberlain College of Nursing’s SIMCARE CENTERS are high-tech, simulated patient care clinical learning environments. Utilizing high-fidelity patient simulators, instructors challenge nursing students to react in real-time to a wide variety of patient scenarios. The simulators, capable of progressive symptoms and normal and abnormal physiological responses to medications and treatments,enhance the student’s on-site clinical experiences. The SIMCARE CENTER is supported by a web-based resource center, a student resource for developing complex skills such as medication calculation. Chamberlain is proud of this new technology, providing its students greater confidence while helping them reach their full nursing potential. Prior to providing direct patient care, Chamberlain nursing students have access to the SIMCARE CENTER, where they can hone their knowledge and skills and increase their confidence. In this simulated clinical patient care environment, students are challenged to react in real-time to a wide array of medical scenarios. These simulated experiences give Chamberlain students a significant advantage over students in other nursing programs by providing “real to life” scenarios. The simulated labs compliment the Chamberlain nursing student’s clinical experience. For more information, visit www.chamberlain.edu/simcare.
